Philip Kaplan

F***edCompany.com founder Philip Kaplan, who became a spokesperson for disaffected dot-com workers in 2000, is stepping aside as CEO at AdBrite but will stay on to take charge of the company's products. The bleached hair and concert T-shirts are gone, but Kaplan still plays drums at work and often jams with employees.
